    I've seen lots of similar posts on this from way back in 2004.

    I subscribe to a Yahoo group (in fact I run several Yahoo Groups).
    When I post to these groups, Yahoo posts group messages to me.
    If the original poster was Myself then Boxtrapper wont deliver the message
    to me even if I whitelist my self.

    Email matches rule "subject [MSHelp2]" Line 1 in whitelist
    Queuing possibly forged email from self xxxxxx@xxxxx.xxx/RE: [hhelpmvps] CHMs for Touch-Screen Applications


    where xxxxxx@xxxxx.xxx is my email address.

    How do I fix this? Is there a work around. I'm getting very sick of approving hundreds of my own posts every month :(

    Thanks
    Rob

    wow, i can't believe there was no response to this thread .... i think that perhaps it should be opened as a bug .. for future fix .. as it's really annoying to not get your own emails from yahoo groups!

    Disable boxtrapper. Trouble there as bounces/auto replies might get you in trouble elsewhere as well as with yahoo.

    Is this possibly an SPF issue where your SPF record is very strict and thus does not show that emails from your email addresses may literally come from Yahoo servers?
